Unwashed Eggs and E Coli
Posted 03 December 2012 - 06:47 PM
I don't clean an egg until just before using it. Does anyone know how long e coli can live on eggshells in a refridgerator? My guess is that as long as there's poop on the shell, the e coli remains alive.

It can get inside the egg thru micro cracks.
Tricky little bastard.
Somebody will say that they eat raw eggs all the time and are fine. Maybe they are just lucky. Maybe they have an immune system of iron. But it is not "safe". What's the risk? Probably low, but not even close to zero.
